Guy trapped in a pinball machine

I used online translation. So feel free to fix this :D

I remember one scene. I think it's a horror movie. I even thought this scene was from the Freddy movie series (A Nightmare on Elm Street). I was wrong.
The film features a villain like Freddy.  Young people are running away from him.
Two guys  go to the game hall. One of them left his friend (He went to the bathroom?)
The villain shrinks his other friend and puts him into the pinball machine. His aim is to kill him inside the machine during the game.
The other guy is coming back and couldn't see his friend. Then he started playing the game. 

I saw a scene like this:

He was trying to get rid of the traps in the game. Then his friend realized that he was inside the pinball machine and tried to save him. The villain continued to laugh.

I watched this movie on TV as a kid. 80's or 90's
Turkish dubbed.

I checked all the movies/episodes I could find. 

It's not "Are You Afraid of the Dark?"  Episode "The Tale of the Pinball Wizard " 

and "Nightmares" (1983 )


Anyone remember this movie?

not "arcade" either? we are sure it is pinball and not an arcade machine?
Yes, I am sure it is a pinball machine. I checked "Arcade". There was no scene like the one I described in this film.
I am still digging, but a freddy vs jason menu of the dvd has jason bounced around the screen like a pinball, freddy using his hands like flippers of the machine...this might be the freddy thing you remember. Wicked City has a truly weird pinball scene, but not sure that is it either. I will keep looking.
